A 35-year-old Brownstown woman faces five drug charges after police said they recently purchased drugs from her.

Ashley Nicole Spurgeon was arrested Tuesday and faces a preliminary Level 5 felony charge of dealing in methamphetamine and preliminary Level 6 felony charges of possession of methamphetamine and a Schedule II drug.

She also faces preliminary Class A misdemeanors of possession of marijuana and a Schedule IV drug.

Seymour Detective Adam Surface said undercover officers purchased methamphetamine from Spurgeon recently at a Circle K in Seymour.

Police said she also was in possession of drugs at the time.

Police arrested Spurgeon on Tuesday afternoon near a fast food restaurant in the 400 block of Steven’s Way in Seymour.
